I had to completely tear apart my engine to replace the crank and clean the engine out. On the rebuild, I finally got the cam back in so I could turn the engine over. While turning the flywheel counter-clockwise, is the kickstart mechanism supposed to be clicking? It clicks a couple of times per revolution.

The flywheel has an arrow on it and also when I put the kick start lever on, it moves in the same direction as the arrow so I know I'm turning it the correct direction.

That's normal. Try turning it clockwise- kerwhomp crack!
